M&P9: Post-Test Accuracy Check #2

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Last month, we checked the accuracy of the M&P9 "endurance test" gun after the pistol was returned from S&W's SHOT Show Booth. The result was about one inch greater group size than before the slide developed the crack which ended our test. As promised -- though a bit belated -- we ...

M&P9: Post-Test Accuracy Check #1

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

As we reported in December, the M&P Endurance Test ended at 62,333 rounds ... 12,333 rounds more than originally planned. Smith & Wesson proudly had the test pistol on display at their 2009 SHOT Show booth. But even though the slide developed a crack, we promised a follow up to check ...

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

  As we reported on Monday, the M&P9 endurance test gun -- pictured left, brand new still in its box back in April -- finally cracked its slide at 62,333 rounds. While the gun continued to run without any stoppages, Smith & Wesson asked that we send the pistol to them ...

M&P Monday: Week Thirty-Three

Monday, December 8th, 2008

62,333 rounds 2 stoppages, 0 malfunctions, 3 parts breakages As you could tell, we didn't get an "M&P Monday" posted last week due to the holidays. How do the Gods of War punish us for this? Yes, that's a crack in the slide. The pistol started to feel slightly different in recoil, a little "snappy" ...

  62,074 rounds 2 stoppages, 0 malfunctions, 2 parts breakages Over 3,100 rounds fired in Week 31 with no stoppages, malfunctions, or breakages.

M&P Monday: Week Twenty-Nine

Monday, November 10th, 2008

56,383 rounds 2 stoppages, 0 malfunctions, 2 parts breakages As we told you last time, this past week involved no shooting of the M&P9 Torture Test gun. Therefore, there isn't a whole lot to report. I personally carried the gun while driving over 2,200 miles in five days. It rode in one of ...

M&P Monday: Week Twenty-Eight

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

56,383 rounds 2 stoppages, 0 malfunctions, 2 parts breakages While the M&P test was slow this week, things certainly weren't slow for S&W. They sold 7,500 M&P9 pistols to the Iraqi Military & Security Forces. We can only assume it was based on the things they read here at pistol-training.com ... right? Finally, after ...

M&P Monday: Week Twenty-Seven

Monday, October 27th, 2008

54,880 rounds 2 stoppages, 0 malfunctions, 2 parts breakages This past week was quite mundane: a few range sessions with nothing unusual to report. A little over 1,600 rounds were fired with no problems.  Hopefully, this week we'll put the finishing touches on the pistol-training.com limited edition S&W M&P9. More info on that will ...
